Be a Leader in Nursing by Heather Henry was published in February 2022 by Elsevier.
The book acts as a practical guide for nurses (and healthcare students more widely) through their leadership journeys. It applies leadership theory to real-world circumstances in the healthcare student journey and aims to help students practice their leadership skills.
The foreword has been written by the Council of Deans of Health’s CEO Dr Katerina Kolyva and uses the framework and learning of the Student Leadership Programme. It has been “co-designed” by students, many of whom were current or alumni of the Student Leadership Programme. It also features a number of quotes and case studies from our #150Leaders alumni, as well as many of the programme’s coaches.
We’re grateful to both Heather and Elsevier for the recognition in the importance of student leadership and the need for those leadership skills to be developed from day one of healthcare careers.
